An Australian 3D surf film has secured international broadcast rights across various platforms and formats.
Firelight’s Marcus Gillezeau, producer of Storm Surfers 3D told Encore the television version of the production, consisting of four parts, has sold into the US, UK and Italian television markets for a June airing.
This will be followed by an August theatrical release for Australia.
The four part series is slated for prime time on Sky3D UK, Sky3D Italia and the US 3D channel 3Net.
The production company has also just inked a deal to release ten two-minute videos with Sony Electronics. The series will go out globally on Sony’s 3D Experience channel, available on Sony Bravia 3DTVs. The series will be available from the beginning of April.
Big wave surfer and star of the three Storm Surfers series, Ross Clarke-Jones, was inducted into Australia’s Surfing Hall of Fame Yesterday, Thursday February 15, 2012.
The film received funding from Screen Australia in 2011.
